Mid-Shore STEM Festival planned for Nov. 10 at college
WYE MILLS — The second annual Mid-Shore STEM Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center, on the Chesapeake College campus in Wye Mills. The event will be held rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The Mid-Shore STEM Festival is being hosted by the University of Maryland Extension 4-H Program, and is focused on providing hands-on science, technology, engineering and math learning for youth of all ages and their families.
